drains and water our yards sparingly. new numbers show we still aren't doing enough to conserve water in the south bay. >> cumulatively, county wide, we're seeing about a 12% reduction, currently. that's through april. >> not even close to the 20% conservation goal set by the santa clara water district and the governor. if you look at the breakdown by city, gilroy is the poster child for conservation. using 32% letsz water this april than april last year. san jose water company, the largest water provider cut use 16%, santa clara, just 9%. but the director of water and sewer utility says the district's numbers don't tell the whole story. >> for the month of may, what we've seen is a 20% reduction to water sales versus may of last year. >> he also says santa clara has
increased its use of recycled water. right now, crews are con verting a 1 1/2 million gal lonl pond to recycled water. changes like this go a long way but say we need to do more. here's why this is so troubling. if we don't reach that 20% goal, our ground water is going to reach a dangerously low level. and that means that down the road, we may be asked to reduce our water use by as much as 40%. reporting live, nbc bay area news. >> when metal thieves strike, police don't have the resources to fight back. state lawmakers are working on new legislation for a task force..sx
